Living and studying in Middlesbrough
Our main campus is in the heart of Middlesbrough, a friendly town with all the shops, restaurants, cinemas, pubs, clubs, sports and museums you would expect - and an art gallery and bridge that are a little more surprising.
From the working docks of the Tees Estuary to the area's vibrant towns and glorious countryside, this is a place where old and new, urban and rural, and culture and commerce converge. We've got top surf, a national park on the doorstep plus unique shopping and culture, bars and famous clubs.
